IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATES

 

17 JULY 2020

Welcome Back to Swim School

It's only a few days until our re-opening on July 20th. Thank you to those that have re-enrolled. We cannot wait to see you!

There have been a few changes to our policies and guidelines due to government restrictions, please note below:

  • Where possible come ready to swim
  • Saturday early swimmers before 10am will be required enter the pool via the Club foyer. Entry is via the ramp at the front of the Club, simply press the front doorbell for front desk staff to grant you entry
  • Hand sanitiser is provided in the Club. Please sanitise hands on arrival
  • All parents and guardians will be required to swipe their membership cards or be signed in at the Club foyer upon entry
  • A thermal camera located in the Club foyer will also scan temperatures on arrival prior to entering the pool area
  • We are allowed to give you access to the change-rooms. However, we ask that you please shower at home where possible
  • We are still encouraging a drop and go policy for all students whom parents feel comfortable with their ability to cope without a parent in the room. For those children who need to have a parent remain inside the facility we ask that only one parent or guardian remain inside and that they sit in designated areas and practice a 1.5m social distance
  • We are limited in the number of observers we are allowed in the Pool area due to distancing. If you are not staying in the swim school, we have set up the Hawks Sport Lounge area for you to wait with a visual of the pool area
  • You must be seated in the pool area (you must not stand)
  • Please leave immediately after class and we ask you do not co-mingle with other swimmers and parents
  • Stay home if you are unwell
  • Only two (2) make-ups classes available per term available
  • Ensure you bring all your own equipment for swimming. No goggles or flippers will be available for loan


To ensure the safety of our children, families & staff. It is important these guidelines are always followed.

Thank you.

After 10 weeks of Shutdown we have some Great News that we will be returning to the pool.

We have been working through updates to all procedures and safety measures to ensure we are on top of everything in order to welcome our swimmers 

and families back in Term 3.


As children return to sport on July 1, we will be rolling all booking over to Term 3 July 20th to 26th September. This will ensure your child doesn’t miss
their normal spot and can look forward to getting back in the water.

We ask all families to let us know if things have changed and their normal time is an issue and we will work to finding an alternate time slot for your return.
Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Also, we are looking to run some holiday programmes for those who just can’t wait from Monday 6th July - Friday 10th July. This will be for all swim levels.
Classes are looking likely to be between 3.00pm - 5.00pm, and we ask you to email your interest and we will confirm bookings and times.

To make things easier, we are moving administration online for members ease. This means that all deposits and payments for classes can be done
via our members’ access area. This can be found on our website or by clicking HERE.

Members will need to start an account and when confirmed in a class we will send confirmation and you can pay online.
Instructions for starting an account can be found HERE and further info on online payments will be sent through in coming weeks.

When you return, swimming may be a bit different. This is to ensure we are Covid Safe, as well as ensuring the safety of all swimmers and their families.
Some of these changes include:

  • No food or drinks in the pool area
  • Adults must physically distance 1.5 metres
  • Everyone must shower before lesson.
  • Use hand sanitiser upon arrival.
  • Only swim if you are well - no fever, running nose or cough.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Swim School.

Kind Regards,

Carl Pozzato

Chief Executive Officer

Dear Swim School Members

The club has now been closed for over a month due to the government’s COVID-19 restrictions for everyone’s health and wellbeing.

We understand that this enforced closure is sad news for all families and members as well as the wider community, but our priority is the safety and welfare of our members and swimmers. We keep monitoring the situation closely and we will keep all members informed during this period of continued uncertainty.

While we cannot bring you online swimming classes (!) we are excited to announce that we now have added online fitness classes to the website. We encourage our members to check out the videos, presented by our Fitness Edge instructors. Also, please visit us at Facebook at www.facebook.com/thefitnessedge and the Club’s website: www.releagues.com.au

As previously communicated, during the time the club remains closed all swim school credits will be held on account and will be able to be used when we reopen or during the following term. For example, if we reopen in Term 2 members may be able to use the credits in this term and also in Term 3. All members who have paid for the full term will have that amount credited for future terms once we are able to re-open.

We are committed to working with all families and swimmers through this time to ensure everyone can get back in the water as soon as possible, while the priority remains to ensure the health and wellbeing of all.

Also, please rest assured that all existing bookings and spots will be held and will carry over to when we re-open.

We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support through this challenging time, and we look forward to seeing you back at the club in the coming months.

Kind Regards,

Carl Pozzato
Chief Executive Officer

Dear Swim School Members,

I am sure all our members and families agree that we are heading into unprecedented territory as a result of COVID-19.

On Sunday night, the Prime Minister announced further restrictions on indoor gatherings that are no longer permitted effective Monday 23rd March, including Gyms and Pools.

Unfortunately, this means that the Swim School will no longer be operating until further notice.

We understand that this enforced closure is sad news for all families and members as well as the wider community, but our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our members and swimmers.

We will monitor the situation closely over the coming weeks and months and keep our members informed during this period.

We encourage all members to ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep up to date with the situation, as well as how we will continue to support and engage with our loyal members through this time.

Visit us at Facebook at www.facebook.com/thefitnessedge or the Club webpage  www.releagues.com.au

During the time of closure, all swim school fees will be put on hold and ready for a return when possible. All members who have paid for the full term will have that amounted credited for future terms once we are able to re-open. We are committed to working with all families and swimmers through this time to ensure everyone can get back in the water as soon as possible, while the priority remains to ensure the health and wellbeing of all.

Also, please rest assured that all existing bookings and spots will be held and will carry over to when we re-open.

We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support through this challenging time, and we look forward to seeing you back at the club in the coming months.

Kind Regards,

 At this time we are continuing our stroke correction and squad levels with social distance and safety measures in place. This includes:

We are a family-friendly swim school that offers a broad range of lessons from 6 months of age up to adults, as well as catering for some swimmers with special needs.

We operate our terms the same as public school terms to make it easier on our families. Everyone has the chance to take a break and refresh for the next term.

Our success is demonstrated through the high calibre of our coaches and instructors who not only strive to obtain the best out of their swimmers but to have fun in the process.

All our instructors are Austswim qualified and we pride ourselves on our teamwork, excellent teaching methods, our outstanding reputation within the community and the high level of success we have experienced within the swimming industry.

The continual support and guidance we offer our families and our staff helps us to remain a swim school with a personal and caring approach while keeping our focus on water education and safety.
